With a constant flow of 200,000 visitors annually, the Groninger Museum is one of the most important museums in the Netherlands.
The Groninger Museum is regarded as a national and international highlight of post-modern architecture. It is known for its extraordinary construction, designed by Italian architect Alessandro Mendini and the Austrian architectural office Coop Himmelb(l)au, while the interior was designed by designers Philippe Starck and Michele de Lucchi, and recently by Studio Job, Maarten Baas and Jaime Hayon.
The Museum owns a historical collection consisting of archaeological discoveries, traditional costumes, and import and export porcelain. In the domain of modern and present-day art, the Museum has a unique collection of paintings by De Ploeg artists’ association and collections of Italian post-modern design, installation art, staged photography, and fashion.
